2005 Dodge Caravan, Blower motor not working. Turn knob no ...

Resolved Question:

2005 Dodge Caravan, Blower motor not working. Turn knob no power. Hit switch for a/c and hear relay working. Turn on switch for Max A/C and hear Relay working. I put in a new resistor but doesn''t appear that it was it. I need info how to get motor out. Can it come out the bottom of the cage behind the glove box? Or should I check something else first?

REMOVAL

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIR-BAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH OR DEATH.

NOTE: The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the instrument panel. The blower motor can be removed from the vehicle without having to remove the HVAC housing.

 

Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
Remove the passenger side cowl trim panel.
Position the carpet to access the front upper screw that secures the air inlet housing.
Remove the recirculation door actuator.
Disconnect the blower motor wire lead connector from the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
Lower Air Inlet Housing



 

Remove the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing.
Remove the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and remove the lower HVAC housing.
Blower Motor Wire Lead Grommet



 

Push the rubber grommet through the opening in the lower air inlet housing.
Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and remove the lower air inlet housing from the vehicle.
Position the recirculation-air door as necessary to access and remove the three screws that secure the blower motor to the lower half of the HVAC housing.
Gently flex the recirculation air door downward to gain access to remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing. NOTE: To aid in installation, note the position of the blower motor mounting tabs prior to removal.
Blower Motor Mounting Tabs

Gently flex the recirculation-air door downward to gain access to install the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
Position the blower motor to the HVAC housing and tilt and rotate the blower motor as necessary to install it into the HVAC housing.

Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and seat the rubber grommet.
Position the recirculation door pivot shaft into the lower air inlet housing and install the inlet housing.
Install the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and the lower HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
